Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 30
  • 50g blanched almonds, lightly blitzed in a processor (ground almonds would work just as well)
  • 2 clementines, zested and juiced
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 4 tsp mixed spice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cm fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 large cooking apple, grated
  • 650g mixed raisins, currants, mixed peel and sultanas
  • 100ml maple syrup
  • 150g coconut oil, melted
  1. Simply combine all the ingredients. Either use straight away or store for later use in sterilised jam or Kilner jars.
We stored ours for a month before trying it and the apples had definitely broken down and begun to ferment slightly creating a tangy but delicious flavour.
